We’re constantly updating our Last Night’s Look gallery with all the best red-carpet moments (gorgeous dresses! dazzling accessories! sky-high heels!). Now, let’s talk beauty. Each Friday, we’ll be highlighting one of the most gorgeous makeup and/or hair moments, along with details on how to re-create the look — straight from the makeup artist or hairstylist — in our feature Look of the Week.
Mad Men might be officially over (cue the sobs), but we’re not done obsessing over Kiernan Shipka’s makeup from the show’s final red carpet. Read on for a product-by-product breakdown, straight from our brow crush’s go-to pro, Lauren Gott.
To celebrate the series finale screening of Mad Men, Shipka opted for a gorgeous white summery dress with appliqué mirrors, which set the tone for her makeup.
“After seeing Kiernan’s awe-inspiring white Valentino dress, we jointly decided to go for something angelic and ethereal to complement the beauty of it,” says Gott. “I chose gold, brown, copper, rose and peach cherubic hues to keep the look vibrant rather than washed out on the red carpet.”
Starting with the eyes, Gott blended Make Up For Ever Grease Paint in brown on the eyelid to enhance intensity, followed by pearl and peach hues from Chanel’s Les 4 Ombres in Tissé Vendome palette. Then she applied a golden brown hue (from the same palette) in the eye crease, outer corners and lower lash line — finishing things off with an ultra-thin line of YSL Shocking Black Eyeliner Effet Faux Cils along Shipka’s top lashes.
And as for the star’s lips, she slicked on two different shades, Chanel Rogue Coco Shine Hydrating Sheer Lip Shine in Etourdie and Chanel Rogue Coco Shine Hydrating Sheer Lip Shine in Flirt. She applied Etourdie over the entire lip using her ring finger, and then added Flirt to the center of the lip. (Pro tip: “A darker, bolder color followed by a lighter or luminescent color in the center of the lips optically volumize lips,” says Gott.)
Now hold on, you didn’t think we’d forget about those brows — which, by the way, are 100 percent real — did you? Gott lightly filled them in with Givenchy’s Eye and Brow Prisme Shadow. The envy is real.
